I only live here 4months out of the year, and last year I brought my dog here to be groomed. (I dont remember the groomers name), but she was very good. Wasnt impressed AT ALL with the store itself.The groomer gave me a price for the hair cut in the back and when i went to pay up front i was given a higher amount. The store smelled horribly, and they had cages lining the wall in a cramped back room that I was told was the "boarding area". One of the dogs in one of the cages had spilled his water bowl and was left to lay in it. When I brought this to the attention of a tall blonde woman wearing a white lab coat that said "owner" on it, she very rudely snapped that she'd get one of her staff to take care of it. Like she was too busy to be bothered with the remedial tasks of business ownership. Good groomer or not, I will never go back.

The store smells really bad. Doesn't seem that they clean the cages very often to have such a very strong ammonia smell. For some reason they are selling a lot of junk lately (used household items and used clothing). It doesn't appear that the "kids" working there have much knowledge of animals or the law. When asked what do I do with some baby birds that we found, I was told that they would sell me baby bird food that I would mix with water to feed them using a syringe. When a friend had me phone HOPE Wildlife Rehabilitation, I was told that not only is this against the law (since I am not a licensed wildlife rehabilitator I am not allowed to raise the baby birds) but the corn based baby bird food sold at pet stores is not for wild birds and it will kill them. Most baby birds eat insects and not corn. From now on I will only ask experts and not the "kids" who work at Fancy's Pets.

I am shocked at the arrogance of the owner. When you have a problem she talks down to you. She is definitely not the customer friendly type. Too bad there is not more competition for Fancy's Pets. They simply are not interested in taking care of customers. If you have a problem with a purchase you are on your own here. If this place closed its door I would not be heartbroken. Local businesses are usually very friendly and cooperative, but not this pet store. I will not set foot in there again and will make sure that "word of mouth" is passed on... Very disappointed...

I personally really like this place. It's convenient, fairly priced, and I think the staff are helpful and friendly. The grooming department does a great job. Jen, who I guess is the new groomer there, did a great job on my sister in law's maltese. Every hair was perfectly in place. I think she did it for like, 30 bucks which is the cheapest around. I strongly recommend anyone to get their dogs groomed there. The return policy is fair...they've been in business for 15+ years...they must be doing something right.

Purchased a Kong inflatable collar tp replace the "cone" collar used after surgery. The air valve was defective causing it to gradually deflate. We had to re-inflate it more and more frequently until it was useless. After 5 days we returned it to fancy Pets. They refused to make good on it at all.

I find it laughable at the reviews here that say how educated and friendly this shop is. First, most of the employee's there are incredibly stuck up and snobby. Second I'm not sure how anyone could consider them educated! If you know anything about reptiles, then you would know just how UNeducated they really are. Their Ball Pythons are housed completely improper, with heat rocks that have dangling power cords IN THE TANKS, insufficient furnishings, and incorrect heating and humidity levels (suggested by the poor shed one of them is suffering from) They have two LARGE adult Ball Pythons housed in a 30g with one hide barely large enough for one, let alone two! Those are just a couple of examples. Any reptile (snake) enthusiast would be outraged at the situation these guys are in. I think they should just get out of selling reptiles altogether.

Also, they're prices are way marked up. I understand the cost of everything has gone up, but they are just completely unreasonable on some items.

I definitely DO NOT recommend this shop.

This pet store had horrible service! I waited at the counter for a good five minutes for help and then when someone finally did come to help me the girl huffed and rolled her eyes as if it was the biggest inconvenience in the world. I asked to speak to a manager and when she came out all she did was say this is our assistant manager and try and brush the situation off. i do not pay good money to be treated like an inconvenience. neither one of these girls where management materiel they rude and stuck up. I would recommend staying away from this store if you expect if the most basic of civility.

In a world dominated by Pet Smarts and Wal Marts Fancy's Pets is a diamond in the rough. They groom my dog for less than 30 dollars, they do an incredibly professional job, and he smells so good!

No one's better to go for advice, they don't work on commission, and they will never try to sell you anything. They have experts on every animal kept as a pet, including the exotic. They offer free aquarium water tests for fresh and salt water.

I see someone below saying to avoid this place because of it's return policy. It is true, unlike Wal mart they won't let you return dead fish. I have tried buying fish from Wally world before, and they usually die, you return them, get a new one, then it dies, and eventually going through dying fish, you are going to find one or two that died from a disease, which my other fish caught, forcing me to treat my whole tank. I would personally rather buy healthy fish, and they refuse to sell you sick fish at Fancy's, unlike some places I know of.

I know the Manager of Fancy's pets, and she has no problem with people, when you talk to her in an even tone, you may find her quite informative. You simply want to call her out because she was the one who had to break it to you. I have lived here and shopped with Fancy for over 10 years now, they have always had the same old sign posted on the door, and at the counter, about what things you can return, which you can only get store credit, and what can't be returned at all. You are used this review process as a threat against the whole store, just because she wouldn't let you bully them out of some money.

There is no where else you can go that will so thoughtfully help you do what you want to do, within your own price range. Their prices are better than Pet Supermarket in Inverness, especially on Aquariums. They also have the highest quality, and best selection of pets around.

Stay Away. Bought an item and was told we could return it. They didn't mention their 'store credit only' policy. They were not willing to give the money back. Manager is defnitely not managerial material and far from being customer friendly.

No wonder people are going elsewhere to get their pet supplies for resonable prices with a customer friendly return policy.

This store is a big NO-NO.

I have gone to Fancy's Pets for pet needs prior to the current location of this shop (previously it was at the Sweetbay Plaza, but at the time it was a Kash N' Karry) and recently, I had to go there at the current location on hgwy 19 down from McDonald's. I was so impressed with Fancy's knowledge and kindness, that when I had a baby squirrel which needed a new home, (I have six cats--- not so good for a squirrel) I chose Fancy to be the one to finish raising it until it was ready to be released, if she was willing. Well, she was. That was two weeks ago. I have called her for updates on the squirrel, and she has told me all I wanted to know, and is going to send me photos! Anyone who says these people don't care about animals is either lying or mistaken. Fancy, and her staff all seem to be kind and knowledgeable professionals. I think they are as good as pet shops get, and I've been to a lot of pet shops over the years.

Fancy's Pets is a high quality store and very clean. Widest range of variety I've ever seen in a small town pet store. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and if they don't know an answer for your question they go out of their way to find out. If they don't have it they will order it for you. Concerning the reviewer stating that the employee's and owner are cruel to the animals there, that is so far from the truth. All the animals are loved and very well taken care of, these are people who love pets and would never hurt them in any way at all. As for the poster who claims to have been quoted the wrong grooming price, that does not happen. They have up, in plain site, exactly what the price is for any breed of dog or cat. They also have wing & nail clipping for birds. The prices are in the right price range for a small town store and are all of high quality, you do get what you pay for you know. I have been shopping at Fancy's since her business opened over 15 years ago and will continue to do so as her business expands even more. Way to go Fancy, Great Job.

I took my dogs there for grooming and boarding. I was given one price and then when I went to pick them up, the charged me another price. I don 't think that is very good business. I was extremely disappointed in what I was hoping would be a great place to keep bringing my dogs

Very nice people, very pet-oriented, and kind. The grooming shop did a fine job, and the store staff were patient and excellent. My puppy got her nails trimed after I had purchased a harness and leash. They have a wide selection of items and food.

This place is horrible. The shop owner is very rude and the prices on the animals are so high compared to market value. STAY AWAY. I am also sure that the animals are cruely treated.

They have so much stuff and really decent pricing on everything. I couldn't be happier with my purchases there and the staff are very knowledgable and helpful. If you're in a hurry though you might want to wait and go when you have more time because they have plenty of staff, yet they get pretty busy being the bestest pet shop around. Way to go Fancy's! Citrus County loves you!

Fancy Pets is always a good place to look for your pet supply needs. They carry everything from pet foods to pet vitamins to pet toys.

They offer competive pricing and they will order something for you if they do not have it in stock. The staff is friendly and most of them are quite knowledgeable about different pets and the way to care for them.

The only negative thing I can think of about this store is that sometimes they are so busy you may have a long wait to be taken care of.
